The Guidance Department has been busily meeting with grade 11 students to discuss postsecondary planning and course selections for next year. Appointments will continue into next week, and will provide students with information regarding the university application process and how best to research using tools such as Career Cruising and eInfo (please see links below). Every fall, Crestwood hosts a number of universities from all over North America. Students are encouraged to research programs of interest during the summer to better prepare themselves for their return in September.
As a note, the Ontario Universities’ Fair will run at the Metro Convention Centre from 10:00am-5:00pm from September 28th through the 30th. Save the date! This is an invaluable experience for parents and students alike, as universities will provide resources in research and will be available for one-on-one conversations.
Postsecondary Research Tools:
• Career Cruising: Log in using the school ID (Crestwoodprep) and password (Careers) by visiting http://www.careercruising.com. This resource provides information on schools all across North America, and is a great way to navigate career options.
• eInfo: This website provides a comprehensive list of every program at Ontario universities — http://www.electronicinfo.ca.
If you have any questions about postsecondary planning, please do not hesitate to contact any of the guidance staff. We look forward to hearing from you!
